During the American Revolution, travel was slow and hard work. Wagons needed to stop often since wooden axles and wooden wheels required grease and maintenance. Marion's militia was documented as travelling fifty miles through the swamps at night on horseback. Most travel from Nelsons Ferry to Camden was along the Santee Path just west of here. This Patriot gives directions to Marion's camp near Jack's Creek.
